    Every now and again, I ask Gerald Haigh to write up the stories of some of the schools that we work closely with. And a few weeks ago, he mentioned what's happening with data at Marsh Academy, and how they are using SharePoint and Office 2010 to aid better understanding of their school data. I'll let...
  • Blog Post: Using Windows 7 BranchCache to speed up education networks

    I had the chance to visit Warwickshire last week, and to meet up with Chris Page and the rest of the local authority education IT team.
